My name is Kathy Sanders and I am running for Port commissioner Position No. 4 because I am deeply concerned about the future of Clatsop County. I desire to see the Port become the economic engine it was intended to be, countywide.
We are at a crossroads. Land prices are sharply escalating and the pool of developable land is shrinking. Decisions made by the Port concerning property and economic development will impact this county for generations to come. We must have a sound, comprehensive strategic business plan as a road map. We need the best executive director we can find, nationwide. But most of all we need openness, honesty and transparency in all dealings with the Port.
My desire is to be a true public servant in this position. I am not afraid to ask tough questions or make difficult decisions to ensure that the citizens of Clatsop County are fairly and equitably represented. My leadership experience as a captain in the U.S. Air Force and my degree in business administration/management has provided me with the skills necessary to do the job.
I believe I can bring a fresh, honest perspective to the Port Commission. I would appreciate your vote and the opportunity to serve the citizens of Clatsop County.
Kathy F. Sanders
